"Vote For Me, You Hillbillies": Ashley Judd Mocked in Lampooning Ad by American Crossroads
Ashley Judd has been a staunch and very outspoken supporter of President Obama and the Democratic party. According to reports, she's been considering stepping up her support of the party from mere voter, to someone to be voted for. However, the uber-conservative company, American Crossroads, has now made an ad, mocking the actress.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Judd has been considering running against Kentucky Republican Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell, in 2014. The ad uses quotations from her speaking about Tennessee as though that is where she was from, as well as further messages from her that they deem to be very liberal, including her talking about 'radicalism'.
American Crossroads, while they may be mocking the novice politician, must be pretty worried about her because they're spending a whopping $10,000 for the ad to appear on YouTube, targeting IP addresses / ZIP codes in Kentucky.
Crossroads spokesman Jonathan said: "We want to stick a pin in her balloon." Well, that's just mean. Luckily though, Ms Judd's approach was positive, and her publicist released a statement saying: "Ashley thanks Senator McConnell, Karl Rove, and their negative allies for all the attention as she considers her future political plans, although a decision hasn't been made yet."
